Blog / What to look for in a used Audi A4


The A4 was Audi’s breakthrough vehicle. It’s been 21 years since the German classic first appeared on our roads, and it’s easy to understand why the car is still so popular today – in fact, it’s estimated that approximately 1.5 million Audi A4’s are sold every year.

Perhaps one of the reasons why the A4 is held in such high esteem is that it’s typically available in a number of different guises, with options to suit almost everyone.

Both the Audi A4 Saloon and Avant models are available with a number of different engines, wheel trims and plenty of interior options, and this means that it’s important to do your homework or potentially consult an expert dealer when purchasing a used one.

Which Audi A4 is best?

Ultimately, there’s no right or wrong answer to this question – it’s simply down to personal preference. In terms of popularity, the third-generation Audi A4 (which takes aesthetics from some of the firms larger models) has proved particularly popular since its launch in 2007.

Front wheel drive or all-wheel Quattro?

Although the front-wheel drive models still offer plenty of power, car owners in the UK are increasingly attracted by Quattro all-wheel drive Audi vehicles – a four-wheel drive Audi is particularly useful for negotiating roads during our notoriously harsh British winters.

Interior and exterior options

Audi A4’s are renowned for having a huge number of interior and exterior design options, gadgets and tools which help to enhance the driving experience. There’s scope for satnav, mudflaps, wheel trims, window tints, leather seats and more – it’s worth discussing your preferences with a professional used Audi Dealer, such as Rix Motors.
